Error indexing for the first time


#1

Hi,
I’ve added acts_as_ferret on my model and add the field ‘name’ to the
ferret index for the first time. I’m using rails 2.2

acts_as_ferret(:fields => {
:name => {:store => :yes, :boost => 2.0}},
:remote => true,
:ferret => {:analyzer => SpanishAnalyzer.new, :use_compound_file =>
true, :merge_factor => 4})

And when I try to search (and needs to rebuild the index, because it’s
for the first time) I do:
def search
@text = params[:text] || ‘’
@results = Model.paginate_with_ferret(@text,
:total_entries => Model.total_hits(@text), :page => params[:page],
:per_page => 10)
@results ||= []
end

I get the following error when indexes my model:

You have a nil object when you didn’t expect it!
You might have expected an instance of Array.
The error occurred while evaluating nil.include?

I’ve reached to ‘ferret_enabled?’ and seems that it crashes when is
using the aaf_configuration hash, either on the ‘ferret_enabled?’ or in
the ‘to_doc’ method. I’ve searched but I can’t find anything about this
error (with ferret). Any help? Thanks!!
